Ahh the VVT actuator from Bosch. That is a $600 part from Bosch, the rest is just labor. The "pin" that fails is internal to the VVT actuator and I am not totally convinced that you cant drive it for a while with the failed pin. The engine wont produce that same amount of power, but I dont think it will hurt anything.
Having said that, I wouldnt drive it like that forever because if the cam shaft breaks from the transfered shock or the bolt holding the VVT actuator slips, it will probably grenade your engine.
